The British drama "Young Adam," starring Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton, has become the second film distributed by a major studio subsidiary this year to receive the rarely imposed NC-17 rating from the Motion Picture Assn. of America. As happened with Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Dreamers," the NC-17 rating was awarded to "Young Adam" because of its sexual content.

You might well wonder what Julia Roberts, Shannen Doherty, Drew Barrymore, Bette Midler and a 42-year-old Chicago psychologist named Kate Wachs have in common. As it turns out, all married impulsively. Quickly--and in major defiance of every mom's maxim: Gee, honey, maybe you should get to know this person you're about to marry before you actually get married. Barrymore's marriage to tavern owner Jeremy Thomas lasted about a month.

Cannes, France At first glance, Jeremy Thomas could be any casually dressed British tourist -- moist, somewhat pink skin glistening under yellow-tinted eyeglasses and a mop of curly gray hair -- out for a stroll in the Mediterranean sun. Spend a few hours with him as he makes his way around town, though, and two things become clear: Cannes is no holiday for a movie producer like Thomas. And this guy really knows his way around. Where to go for a breakfast meeting?

There is an old joke in Hollywood. The subjects have been myriad--Mother Teresa, the president, even the pope--but the punch line is always the same: " . . . but what I really want to do is direct." But for Jeremy Thomas, the London-based producer of such epics as "The Last Emperor" and "The Sheltering Sky," and smaller films like "Naked Lunch" and "Insignificance," the adage was no joke.

At one point during the making of Bernardo Bertolucci's critically acclaimed movie "The Last Emperor," producer Jeremy Thomas stood with one of his investment bankers watching the filming of a scene involving thousands of elaborately costumed extras gathered inside the walls of Beijing's Forbidden City. When the banker commented on the beauty of the spectacle, Thomas responded: "You'd better like it; it's costing you $10,000 a second."

British Film Chief: And in Britain, producer Jeremy Thomas, whose films include "The Last Emperor," "Naked Lunch" and "The Sheltering Sky," is going to be the new chairman of the British Film Institute. He will replace Sir Richard Attenborough, who was to retire at the end of September but has agreed to stay on until Jan. 1 so Thomas can complete location shooting on his current production, Bernardo Bertolucci's "Little Buddha." Thomas will act as a figurehead for the British film industry.

Producer Jeremy Thomas thinks he's got a project worthy of following his multi-Oscar-winning "The Last Emperor": An original screenplay--romantic drama--by Arthur Miller. Still untitled, it's the celebrated playwright's second film script. He did "The Misfits" in 1961, which starred his then-wife Marilyn Monroe in her last film. (Also the last film for Clark Gable.) Thomas was unwilling to discuss details with us.
